        The mission of the District African American Parent Advisory Council (DAAPAC) is to provide a forum to hear the ideas of the Bakersfield City School District’s African American parent community and respond to those ideas by educating and informing parents of district resources, policies, and programs. It is our goal to empower the lives of all African American children and families by providing the knowledge and skills necessary to advocate for a high-quality educational experience for our children.

        The goal of DAAPC is to engage, equip, and empower parents to advocate for the academic success of their children.  DAAPAC works to develop resources that allow parents to more actively support the academic instruction their children receive and engage with educators and administrators in the Bakersfield City School District. Inform parent representatives so they can share the information back to their school sites.
